Malcolm Duffy

Homosapien single

Mixes: Malcolm Duffy

From a band that needs no introduction comes this awesome track with mixes from a man many regard as one of the Lords of the Underground.

Malcolm Duffy turns in what is most probably his finest production to date, which is set to devastate club dance floors across the land and beyond...

What happens when one of the biggest rock bands of the 80's and 90's covers a classic track which is then remixed by one of the most highly respected underground DJs? The band I'm referring to is Simple Minds, the track Homosapien, the DJ Malcolm Duffy and the result is a stunning remix that has already been played by Pete Tong and is being hammered by a handful of DJ's off acetate.

What was at first presumed to be a bootleg, now appears to be a genuine remix commissioned by the band's management, and will be released in December by London label, Remote Recordings.

For much of London's gay/mixed clubbers, Malcolm Duffy is a major part of their weekend soundtrack as his weekly gigs in London alone comprise of arguable three of the most influential clubs on the scene, taking in Fiction at The Cross on Fridays, Trade at Turnmills on Saturdays and DTPM at Fabric on Sundays.

Although he has many productions under his belt, this is possibly his finest to date combining the tough, funky uncompromising sound of his DJ sets with the unique quality vocals of Simple Minds. This, coupled with the current fascination and popularity with the 80's sound should this track gain wide appeal.
